Iceland really wants y'all to forget about that whole ashcloud and those failed banks and love them again, so they've kicked off their campaign "Inspired by iceland" with a contagious song and dance. It shows off the scenic landscapes, the geysers, the random nude couple frolicking, and quite a few dancetastic icelanders. They've also made a Vimeo channel showing other folks who've been inspired by Iceland - though, some Beatles fans might not have forgiven Yoko Ono just yet, even if she did build the Imagine Peace Tower in Reykjavík that is a memorial to John Lennon.
